I feel as much attachment for Puffy as I possibly covild for an intelligent and faithful dog. His crippled wing has probably made him unusually docile and tractable, but, whatever may be the cause of his goodness, he certainly is a model of patience, placidity, and birdly virtue. This, in combina- tion with pluck, which leads him to charge upon and vanquish dogs, cats, and domestic fowls, and a magnanimity which enabled him to roost for weeks alongside of an old hen, will make him worthy of owlish canonization when in good time he is gathered to his fathers. (from MR. BOLLES' NOTES.) March 28, 1893. I took four small mice to the door of the owls' cage. It was a week since the owls had been fed and they were very hun- gry. Fluffy was on a barrel close to the door. I called Puffy, and swung a mouse by its tail so that Fluffy near by, and Prince Edward eigh- teen feet away, could see it. Prince Edward at once flew up to the barrel. I called Puffy again. Then I tossed the mouse into the air and Fluffy caught it, going to the floor with it, and holding it in his mouth until Prince Edward came to him. Then Fluffy poked his head forward qui- etly, and gave Prince Edward the mouse. Puffy then came from the back corner of the cage,.
